Container train from China. A fast and cost-efficient alternative
From China to Finland by train in 3 weeks
Rail freight from China reaches Finland in about three weeks. Rail transport is a suitable transport solution when the 6-7 week transit time by sea is too long, and airfreight would be too expensive. Therefore, railway transport is optimally suited for high-value industrial and commercial goods, as well as for seasonal an promotional goods.
The China-Europe Block Train (CEBT) operates regularly between China and Europe. The route covers over 12000 kilometers from China to Finland through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and Poland. Transport units are mostly regular 40’ containers. For dangerous goods, acceptance for rail carriage must be checked in advance, and the shipper must present the required hazardous goods documents.
Two departures weekly
LCL cargo departs from the Hefei and Wuhan terminals on Wednesdays and Fridays. Pick-ups from the major Chinese cities take 1-3 days to reach the railway hubs for rail cargo to Europe. Our agent in China, Ensign Freight Shanghai takes care of export forwarding for shipments to Finland.
